BR has been searching for his friends for the past ten minutes when he spots them having drinks in the "Long Bar." Pleased at finding them, he hurries over, "I knew I'd find you lot here."
They were all pleased to see their old friend.
Anne gave him a big kiss letting him know just how pleased she was to see him.
Charles said, “It’s unusual to see you here. What’s up?”
With excitement and trepidation not usually associated with BR, he started to tell them his story, "I had to come and see you. I didn't know who else to turn to.”
Phil tried to console him, "Calm down me old mate, have a drink, what'd you want?"
"Give us a large whiskey."
Standing at the bar Charles only has to turn around to order the drink, which arrived almost
instantly. Taking it from the pretty barmaid he handed it over to BR, “There you go, mate.”
BR took the drink and almost downed it in one, "Cheers Charlie, I don't know where to start."
Phil put a consoling hand on BR's shoulder, "Take it, easy son, Just calm down and tell us
what the problem is?"
"It's not a problem. It's a miracle, it's bloody magic."
Anne who is now interested, "Come on Brian darling, don't keep us in suspenders all night, cough it up."
BR now wanting to keep the next thing he says a secret lowers his voice, "Now this is just between us four right?"
Philip, Charles, & Anne heads all close in on BR, and they all answer as a group. "Yeah, of course, come on mate, what is it?"
They all move away from the bar.
Anne holding her glass up, "It'll be our little secret."
Phil, "You know us."
BR, "That's why I came here. You're the only people I can trust."
Phil, "Well it's nice to be trusted."
Charles, "So what's the big secret?"
"You know I work at Paddington?"
Charles, "I thought you worked at Victoria."
"I did. I got moved."
Charles, "OK, now you're at Paddington. So?"
"I got something that'll make the Great Train Robbery look like a chimp's tea party. This’ll make
that job look like kindergarten stuff."
Phil’s curiosity is aroused, "Sounds interesting. What is it?"
BR, "Well, every Thursday there's a delivery from Kings Cross to us. It always arrives at around
13.00, never before. The thing is. There's never anyone there at 13.00. We're all at dinner from
13.00 till 14.00. So they just leave it. It don't get signed for, it just sits there. And no one knows how many bags have been delivered."
Phil's interest is now peaked, "So what's in the bags? Old money?"
"You got it, used notes. The same as the Train Robbers nicked."
Phil can't believe what he's hearing, "What they just leave the bags unattended?"
"That's what I'm saying. That’s the beauty of it. They're always there for at least forty-five
minutes to an hour and if a couple of ‘em went missing, no one would ever know."
“How many bags are we talking about?”
“Fifty, sixty, sometimes more.”
Charles's voice becomes a little high-pitched, "A couple, why not nick the lot?"
Phil, raises a hand to Charles, "Slow down, BR's right, he's thought it through. If we nicked the
lot, alarm bells would start ringing, there'd be old bill all over the place, and that, you devious
little criminal would put the tin hat on that. Now instead of having a sweet little tickle, our friend
here has thought it through. He’s got it sorted. Instead of everyone being captured, and banged
up for the next twenty years, doing it his way no one will ever know anything had ever been
Then to BR, “Ain’t that right BR?"
“Yeah, well that was the idea.”
Charles has instantly calmed down, "So you want to just take a couple like BR said?"
Phil, "Well, Yes and No."
Anne, knowing Phil always thinks things through, "Oh, oh, here it comes."
Phil now has everyone's attention, "How about if we take say four bags a week for a couple of months, then no one would be any the wiser, and no crime would have been committed."
Anne, “Told you, I knew he’d think of something.”
BR, "That's bleeding genius. I knew I'd picked the right place to come. I hadn't thought of that."
Phil half laughs, "Bollocks, who you trying to kid, course you had, you cunning little bastard."
Faining bashfulness, "Well maybe."

I have just finished reading the Rhombus and found it a real page-turner. The plot was exciting and the characters became my friends. I didn't want the book to end.

Great book with plenty of action with a great story about elephant poachers. Plenty of twists and turns.
With four books finished, I'm now going to work on the movie scripts, and then I will place them into the books as a bonus.
